Do you like to celebrate your birthday? Most of us do but maybe not all. What do you prefer? A party, quiet night with someone you love, or maybe to play it down and just let the day pass unnoticed? This time you all go first. It's so very late and I've been up way too many hours so I'm off for some sleep.

So...please share your thoughts and expectations on birthdays...

I don't really like to celebrate mine, but at the same time I don't like it to go by totally unnoticed either. A "Happy birthday Daddy" from my little one and a card he picked or "made" himself and maybe a night off from cooking makes my day.

I like to celebrate mine, I like a surprise once in awhile and to go out to eat...

On your birthday you find your true friends the ones who care to remember you exist on other occassions such as Christmas others around you remind you who to give presents to but birthdays are much more personal so I like birthdays and the surprises. We are all just big kids after all.

I prefer to give parties for everyone else.  Yesterday was my B/D and it was way too much celebrating.  Breakfast out with my husband and Daughters, lunch with 2 of my dearest friends, went out for awhile came home and my husband had planned a surprise dinner with My Dad and oldest was a wonderful day but too much food and cake!  I got heartfelt gifts, beautiful cards and wonderful memories................but I really do prefer a nice quiet dinner out with the ones I love best!
